Pigs are considered an important source of Toxoplasma gondii infection for humans. Antibodies to T. gondii were determined in serum samples from 587 pigs from Vietnam using the modified agglutination test (MAT) and found in 160 of 587 (27.2%) pigs, with MAT titers of 1:25 in 32 pigs, 1:50 in 34 pigs, 1:100 in 33 pigs, 1:200 in 24 pigs, 1:400 in 21 pigs, 1:800 in 14 pigs, and 1:3,200 in 2 pigs. Antibodies (MAT 1:20 or higher) were found in 75 of 325 (23%) finishers, 63 of 207 (32.3%) sows, and 22 of 55 (40%) boars. Results indicate high prevalence of T. gondii infection in pigs in Vietnam. This is the first report of prevalence of T. gondii in pigs from Vietnam.
